Happy beautiful Friday!  I’m typing this from my desk at our bay window listening to Matt Nathanson after an amazing concert last night.  We were able to walk to and from the venue, and it was just overall such a fun night that I think I’m still living off of that buzz.  I love seeing live music and always try to see a few shows a year.  So much fun to look forward to and listen to the music leading up to.

I’ve really enjoyed a quiet March and April is definitely picking up speed and quickly.  Both Christian and I have a good bit of travel coming up and will be in and out.  It still feels pretty wild that we have three more months in this apartment and then we will be forever done with training, forever done with school.  The contract has been signed, the city and state has been chosen, our future that we have talked about for the past six years is so close we can almost touch it.  The 100 day countdown has been on and you best believe we are literally counting down!  I feel like Christian is going to have control over his life for the first time in many, many years and it just feels past due yet still so exciting.  We’ll be sharing those details closer to the move!

It’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend this weekend, so I want to take Miss Bailey on a nice long stroll and enjoy the sunshine.  It really recharges me and is also a great way to get some miles in while enjoying the city.  Christian will be studying, but I have a feeling I can get him to sneak away for brunch.  Everyone wants to sneak away for brunch, right!?

What are your weekend plans?  I have a few things I’ll be cooking like white bean chicken chili and cornbread and vegetarian stuffed sweet potatoes.  Tell me if you’ve tried any great recipes lately! Thanks so much for reading and sharing – XO –

  1. So exciting! I’ve been following you San Fran journey because it’s very similar to my own. My husband and I moved to Boston for a fellowship last July and the experience has been…stressful! We are hoping to be moving in the next few months too–fingers crossed! Have a great weekend!

  2. I’m so excited for you guys and can’t wait to hear where you’re landing. I can so relate too – my husband and I are also about to have a big life transition in three-ish months (quitting our jobs and moving to England! Woo hoo!). I can’t wait and even though I know three months is short it still feels A-G-E-S away! Like, get here already, June/July! Haha! Wishing you guys all the best though – I really enjoy your blog and IG. Thanks for taking us along on your journey!

  3. AAHHHH!!!! It’s final! I am so excited to see where y’all end up! I’ve been following along since your first house in Mississippi and it has been a wild ride! The engagement, the wedding, the move to SoCal, SF, and yet, your journey is JUST BEGINNING! Happy for you both! <3

I look forward to reading/seeing what you guys have planned next. Time is flying! I feel like it was just the other day you were chatting with your readers on how tough things were.
